Halloween and October happenings...

October was a busy, busy month for us with Easton's birthday and Cohen's blessing. Somewhere in there we managed to fit in halloween and a few other activities.

We went on our annual halloween hay ride to a local pumpkin patch to pick our pumpkins. Easton with his pumpkin

Easton was the pumpkin patch
We had a little family night out in Salt Lake City our first stop was at Buca Di Beppo...fine Italian family eating at it's best...Easton loving his mac n'cheese. (and yes, whenever he poses for pics he thinks it necessary to do crazy things with his hands?? don't know why)
The biggest dessert ever...and our fat selves finished the whole thing off!
The reason for our outing was to go watch my cousin Mitch. He plays hockey for the Utes. I know...only time I would ever be caught DEAD cheering for them. I must really love him (haha) It was such a fun night and he did awesome! Easton enjoyed himself too!

Per his request... Easton as Buzz Lightyear (thanks to my friend Emily Price for lending out this costume, was dreading dropping $50 on a nice disney store costume and she had one just easton's size)...he loved it so much he screamed bloody murder when we pryed it off him!at the ward trunk or treat

Buzz Lightyear and Superman
Cohen was the cutest superhero...
Halloween was so much fun this year, Easton LOVED it. He still is talking about halloween months later and has already planned what he is going to be next year. So fun having him at an age where he is interested, I love it!

Cohen's blessing

We blessed Cohen on Sunday, October 10th. Shannon gave the most wonderful blessing. So grateful for our little 'coco bean'. He is about the chunkiest baby ever, but the best baby takes alot for him to cry. We could not feel more blessed to have him as part of our family. Sure love our little guy! It was a great day with lots of family and food. We almost contemplated doing the blessing in Idaho because of my mom's condition. This was only about six weeks before my mom passed away, and from what I'm told one of the last days she was feeling ok. What a blessing it was to have her there, something I'll never forget.

Our family of four
Cohen and Aunt Hailey I love this little tux, my Aunt Colette made it when Easton was born...I just think it's the cutest!
